This is an easy 5½ mile walk across farmland, on footpaths, quiet country lanes and the towing path.

There are no stiles. It is a re-run in its entirety of last November’s walk, aborted due to bad weather, but with a new starting point.

Meet at 10:15 for a 10:30 am start in the car park of The Cock Inn, Bulls Lane, Wishaw, Sutton Coldfield, West Midlands, B76 9QL.

Leaving The Cock Inn, we first head in a northerly direction towards Grove End, where we pick up a route that brings us back towards the pretty village of Wishaw. A kissing gate near Rookery Cottages leads us to a footpath that will take us down to the canal at Baylis’s Bridge. Walking on historic ridged brick horse treads we pass through the short tunnel at Curdworth and continue along the towpath as far as Broad Bulk Bridge, at which point we leave the canal and follow a field boundary, going slightly uphill towards Wiggin Hill Cottages. We then turn right and follow the quiet country road back towards our starting point.
